Rich Snippets Now in Google UK & Other Non-US Properties

First blogged at BigMouthMedia, Google's Rich Snippets feature which went live in the U.S. in May is now showing up in other Google properties, such as the UK, Canada and other English based language countries.

When it first launched, it was only based in the US. But now if you try to bring up sites that provide rich snippets to Google outside of the US, some show them. For example, Google UK, Google Canada and Google Ireland all show them, but Google Israel, Google Mexico and Google Italy do not. I believe it has to do with the language of that country.

This was first spotted in a thread we covered earlier that felt rich snippets were coming to smaller sites, still not sure if that is true.
